The dreary rain this past week matched the sad events playing out in Boston.
With some resolution, the weather dawned sunny and chilly on Saturday
to relieve the mood. The rivers and streams all over the area
are flooded, but people are happy to be out and about,
doing errands, taking part in events all around the city.
The magnolia that bloomed just a week ago already are battered
and worn from the the rain and winds. But they have been replaced
by another round of flowers, such as these delicately hued
flowers on the trees in front of the Federal Court House.
